to changing gun laws now in the wake of this latest massacre in newtown connecticut, with 26 people being dead and the big majority of nra members in favor of at least starter reforms to our gun laws, the biggest barrier to reforming our laws now may just be the pervasive common wisdom that it's not even worth it to try. modern history defies that common wisdom. but it persists. it persists, maybe. now, the last time we talked on the show about the long, long and long lost modern history and bipart san gun reforms was in the wake of the tucson shooting this past weekend. and in the wake of that shooting, the tucson shooting, this was the general assessment. gun control dead. a nonstarter. shootings unlikely to change laws. don't expect any changes. that was our random survey of the headlines last january after the tucson shootings. at least if you asked the beltway shooting gods. now it seems like the common wisdom may be less certain. look at the headlines now. and it's more like this. debate on gun control is revived. lawmakers call for tougher gun laws in wake of new town massacre. gun cont

in that community, certainly not used to something like this, occurring in a neighborhood like newtown. this is a place where people move intentionally to raise their children, for the school system, for the adorable throw-back community, for that essence of what everyone wants their children to experience that, true small-town feeling, where hundreds and hundreds of people will show up at a community church to grieve and join together and to work towards repair. >> greta: thank you. this mass murder investigation stretching from connecticut to new jersey. tonight, we learn the killer's brother has been taken in for questioning in hoboken, sort of voluntarily -- not taken into custody. that's where we have anna coyman, standing by live. what you can tell me about the brother and the questioning? >> reporter: we are standing in front of his home, 24-year-old ryan, the brother of the alleged shooter. i can actual, less than an hour ago, police rolled up their tape. it had been blocking the entrance of the building, which was surrounded earlier this afternoon. we hear from a reliable fede

news. i'm ashleigh banfield in for erin burnett tonight. in newtown, connecticut, it is the scene of one of the worst school shootings in the history of the united states and we can report for you that police have now identified a school shooter as adam lanza. a shooter who killed 26 people today at the sandy hook elementary school here in this small connecticut town. 20 children were killed. 18 of them were pronounced dead right at the scene of the school. two of them were rushed to the hospital, hoping that they could save them. those children died at the hospital. six adults at the school were also shot dead. and they died at the scene as well. nancy lanza, a teacher at the school and a mother of the suspected shooter, was also killed. but she was found dead in her son's home in newtown. adam lanza, the 24-year-old brother ryan lanza, was taken into police custody. ryan lanza taken into police custody for questioning in hoboken, new jersey, earlier today. officials had not labeled him a suspect. but he was taken away in handcuffs. his brother adam died at the scene. but police
in connecticut, newtown, connecticut, it's so hard for them to believe and to understand what happened here. back to you. >> they haven't said officially that the shooter wound up killing himself, have they? >> reporter: they have not. they have not revealed that. they have not officially released the shooter's name either. we also understand, remember, there is another adult at another location who was also found dead and we believe that that has some connection to the shooter in this case, and yet someone else was also being questioned. so this investigation is far from over. there is a warrant being served at the place where the suspect lived with someone else, who was also involved in the shooting. and so a lot of questions, of course, as we all have at this time to find out how this happened and, wolf, why this happened. >> many questions that law enforcement will be investigating. susan, stand by. joining us on the phone right now is lieutenant paul vance, a spokesman for the connecticut state police. he's in newtown himself. i don't know if you have the answers, lieutenant, and you must be
of newtown, connecticut. the people of connecticut can relate to these victims of the assault and all americans can relate to some extent this crime that's occurred. at this elementary school. madam speaker, i have four kids and 10 grandkids, three of my daughters are teachers by profession. my wife is a first grade elementary school teacher. and no parent, no parent ever wants to bury their child. they just don't want to do that. we never want our children to die in their youth. like these children did. so, madam speaker, we mourn with the families of connecticut. we must honor the victims in our prayers and in our words and ask the good lord to bless them, their families, the people of connecticut and yes, our country. and that's just the way it is. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. the chair recognizes the gentleman from oregon, mr. blumenauer, for five minutes. mr. blumenauer: the mall shooting that might have been worse and ended in newtown, connecticut, where it's impossible to imagine that it was worse. it's part of an ongoing pattern of c
begin with the search for a motive. it is clear friday's shooting in newtown, connecticut can have no rational explanation. the act itself is the definition of insanity. still at this hour, investigators are work to unravel the sequence of events that ended with a man killing his own mother, driving to an elementary school and murdering 26 innocent children and adults before committing suicide. right now it's all still a puzzle. but investigators are working to assemble it. law enforcement source tells the associated press teams are going through the short's computer and checking phone and credit card records in an attempt to figure out what he was doing and what he was thinking in the days and weeks before this attack. >> we did seize significant evidence at the residence. we are analyzing and will analyze. it's a very pain-staking process. >> a spokesman says the shooter took classes at community college when he was 16 years old. apparently did well. an intelligent young man by all accounts. on friday, something went very wrong in his head. police say he murdered his mother while
in newtown, connecticut. anderson cooper 360 starts now. >> thanks very much and good evening. there is only one story tonight. you know what it is. we have new details to tell but and we won't pretend we understand it any better than after it happened. it is a horror beyond words. kids as young as 5 years old. sadly to the names columbine and jonesboro, we have to add newtown, connecticut to virginia tech add sandy hook elementary, the second deadliest school shooting ever. 20 little kids and seven adults and the shooter who took his own life. all in a close-knit quiet community 90 minutes from new york. we will give you the latest information, but what we will not do is repeat the shooter's name over and over again. we don't want history to remember this murderer. we want history to remember the victims, the teachers and the children, those whose lives have been unfairly taken. we have a teamworking on the tragedy and we have soledad o'brien on the scene. there vigils tonight. we will be checking in with her shortly. vigils to tell you about as the people come to grips with what happened.
. and i believe what causes that change is that 20 of the victims in newtown, connecticut, were young children. and there is not only a heartbreak across our country about this, not only anger, but i think there's guilt. and we all ought to feel guilty because as a society, what the attacks in newtown said to us is that, we have failed to fulfill what would seem to be our most natural -- natural law. if you will. responsibility which is to protect the safety and lives of our children. >> senator joe lieberman talking on the senate floor saying they ought to feel guilty, referencing himself and his other colleagues, that americans aren't protected by stricter gun laws in this country. the senator there eye were an impassion -- with an impassioned speech. but even as both members, or even as members of both chambers of congress are advocates for strong gun regulations in the wake of this tragedy, there are some who would argue that more control of firearms is not the answer. joining me now is one of them, georgia republican congressman jack kingston. sir, it's good to have you here. i h
but the commander in chief. joining me from newtown, connecticut, is chris jansing, host of "jansing & company." chris, we heard a lot of different things about flowers running out of local shops there in town because of the outpouring the support for the victims. as we watched the scene there grow. describe what you've been witnessing as you people prepare to bury two of these little 6-year-olds. >> everybody that i talked to, thomas, in this community,s especially the families have told me that they feel the support here and literally around the country. i was talking to principal hochsprung's daughter, erica. we heard from her this morning. she said one of the things that has heartened her is hearing from teachers all around the country, house inspired they would have been. she said if my mother would have had one message to anybody, it would have been read a book to a child. and they've been overwhelmed by social media, support that they've gotten. then if you look behind me. i've been to this memorial in downtown as early as 6:00 in the morning and as late as 11:30 at night. and families
of the recommendations. >> today funerals will be held for four more victims of the tragedy in newtown including teacher victoria soto who tried to protect her children from adam lanza's wrath. >> is this tragedy a tipping point on the issue of gun control? >> i honestly don't understand why you would rather have people be victims of a crime than be able to defend themselves. it's incomprehensible. >> you're an unbelievably stupid man, aren't you? >> our plan "b" would protect american taxpayers who make $1 million or less. >> 13 days from the fiscal cliff. democrats saying plan "b" is doa. >> boehner's proposal will not pass the senate. >> huge winter storm stretching from colorado to the upper great lakes expected to cause blizzardlike conditions today. >> if this turns out to be real, a giant eagle snatching a child from a park in montreal. >> instagram is backing off a new policy that allowed it to use photos. >> out of russia, a truck rolling over spilling out dozens of cows. >> do fans ever ask you to curse at them? >> all the time. >> and all that matters. >> you've got to be kidding me. you know
the attorney general is set to head to newtown, connecticut, today after meeting with vice president joe biden at 1:00. but don't expect to see him. this is not a public event. the attorney general has scheduled to apparently meet with some of the law enforcement officials in that town and then also with some of the first responders who were the first people to enter the sandy hook elementary school and discover the carnage there that ended up being the loss of 20 children and six adults in that school and then, of course, the mother of the killer who was shot in her bed and the killer himself. the attorney general apparently is not traveling with any other senior justice officials to newtown. he will also not be attending any of the funerals or the memorials. and again, you will not be seeing the pictures of him. there's no plan for this to be anything public other than these meetings he's going to have with those law enforcement officials. but, of course, this is a day of more farewells in newtown. six, six funerals in this tiny community, six visitations also. so 12 services. these people b
after the tragedy in newtown, a moment of silence will be marked this morning after 9:30 and echoed across the country to pay tribute to the victims in a community still in shock. good morning from washington. it's friday, december 21st, 2012, and this is "the daily rundown. i'm chris cillizza in today for chuck todd. we start with speaker boehner's stunning defeat last night. his own party pulling the rug out from under him with just 11 days to go before we go over the fiscal cliff. boehner and his team spent the better part of the week trying to round up support for his plan b to avoid the cliff but in the end there weren't enough republicans willing to pass it. so at 7:45 last night the speaker convened house republicans, said a prayer, broke the news, and sent everyone home for the holidays. the majority leader eric canter relayed the news to reporters. >> no vote today? >> no. >> will there be a vote tomorrow? >> no. >> are you ditching plan b? will there be a vote today? >> no. >> what happened tonight, mr. cantor? >> a statement from boehner came almost simultaneously. he sai
to impart to you and some people want to know how this could happen in newtown connecticut and how 20 little innocent kids could be murdered. we have more information about the shooter and family mystery. >> we do. before we get started let's look at the coverage of the tabloids here in new york city. america weeps. there is the president of the united states. he shed a couple of tears in the briefing room yesterday. slaughter of the innocence. and a picture you saw a lot of yesterday from the beup in newtown yesterday where a police officer leads those children single file out of sandy hook school. >> so many horrific elements to this story but i think the worst for me is the fact that there are 20 kids dead between the ages of 5 and 10 years old and as we learn more about the shooter, it seems as though there were clues he was capable of doing this. >> there will be an update at 8:00 this morning with the authorities. >> all right. peter doocy meanwhile is live in sandy hook for us with the very latest details. good morning, peter. tell us what you have learned overnight. >> alisyn, we lea
, including soledad o'brayen on the scene. >> a vigil held tonight. the people of newtown trying to come to grips with what has happened. just behind us this morning. right now, right now, this is still an active crime scene that means many of the bodies are lying where they fell inside the school, including the body of a killer. we want to at least tell you his name. and as anderson, we won't be repeating it much tonight at all. 20 years old. his mother taught at the school. she was found dead at the family home. unclear exactly how she died or when she died. >> soledad, the idea that those kids are still in the school, i mean, it is such a horrific image to think about tonight, and for the parents, not to be able to see their children yet. >> yeah, the police say it's an active crime scene and they told us they thought by sunday, they would be able to have the crime scene part of it and the investigation at least that portion of the wrapped up. but now we're getting told that actually it might be even as soon as tomorrow morning. but as you can imagine, knowing your child has perished
i am neil cavuto. today, newtown, connecticut, is if a state of shock because the unthinkable happened. a mass shooting at sandy hook elementary school. here is what we know. there are conflicting reports over the exact identity of the shooter. we told the suspect's brother is being questioned. officials say his mother was found dead in connecticut. the father's body was found in new jersey. there are separate reports up to four weapons possibly involved including a rifle and two automatic weapons. the president visibly shaken by today's attacks. >> the majority of those who died today were children. beautiful little kids between the ages of five and 10 years old. they had their entire lives ahead of them, birthdays, graduations, weddings, kids of their own. among the following were also teachers and men and women who devoted their lives to help our children fulfill their dreams. >>neil: now the latest from newtown, connecticut. rick? rick: the governor of connecticut was here a short time ago and called this a tragedy of unspeakable terms that you can never be fully prepared
at newtown, connecticut. breaking children being led across a parking lot. an expression of terror been across the face of that one little girl in the blue shirt. the mother of the child called in to fox news. jenna: can you tell us what happened inside the school were your daughter was? >> she was in a small class, a reading group. they started hearing bangs and her teacher, which i am so grateful for, there was just a small group. they rushed the kids into the bathroom. they locked the door. they just told the children that it was hammering, and they tried to keep them calm. the next thing that i know, because it's very hard to get a complete story, the next thing i know is that the police came and they were knocking on the door to be let out of the classroom. when they were, they stop laughing blood. one child was covered in blood. i understand that child is safe and was not hurt. it must have been somebody else. megyn: there is a lot of information coming into the newsroom at this hour. the news has evolved as we have learned more information. i would like to tell the viewers that w
